time that president george h. w. bush ran. even though we have a republican governor and a state house controlled by republicans, the senate and the house. we always seem to be trending below, but at the last-minute presidential campaigns tend to show up here. the obama campaign calls it a hail mary pass. itaromney campaign colzalls move in a place the polls are narrowing. that would tell me he thinks pennsylvania is in play. president clinton will be here tomorrow doing several stops in pennsylvania. he is one of the most of powerful political surrogates that president obama has. he's very popular in pennsylvania. i do not think we will see the president here. if he shows up, that is proof positive that pennsylvania could go either way. host: pennsylvania considered a battleground, but it is trending below and looking like it is going to be in obama's corner. -- but it is trending blue. describe what is going on in pennsylvania vs. ohio. guest: it has been much quieter. we have more surrogacy coming in and they draw smaller clowrowds. they pack the stadium, like you are seeing t

to the events comparing governor romney to george bush. i started researching the repeal of the glass-steagall act. after the repeal, there was social engineering to allow people to purchase real estate. wall street went bananas. that is when everything was done that led to this crash. then-president bush was working with democrats. the democrats engineered the repeal of glass-steagall. that is what led to this economic class -- economic crash. to insinuates that president obama inherited a mess is absolutely false. host: there are large crowds in pennsylvania waiting for governor romney. there were 23,000 people waiting for president obama today. here is what he had to say. [video clip] >> i want all parties to work together. we are not democrats or republicans first. we are americans first. whenever others are willing to work for me, i work with them. some of them supported us when we cut taxes for middle-class families and small businesses. some courageous republican senators voted with us to repeal don't ask, don't tell. as long as hills with president, i will work with anybody wi

away but he was pretty close to george w. bush. president bush felt that billy graham made a tremendous difference in his life in a personal way in terms of his faith in helping rescue his life. i think he was pretty close to president george w. bush, as well. is not spoken a lot in terms of campaign literature but i think there has been some issues out there among evangelicals and some skepticism about governor romney's mormon faith and i think billy graham's blessing is an important signal that it is ok to vote for a mormon. there have been full page ads and so forth. i think that is a very important thing in terms of the romney folks for billy graham to give that signal. host:rob christensen is with us. he is talking to us from raleigh and you can read more of his writings at news we want to get more input and conversation going with some of our viewers and listeners. in order to do that, pick up the phone or send us a message -- we have a special line for folks calling from north carolina -- you can also send us e-mails -- we are on facebook -- and you can a

. last time they vote republican was for george herbert walker bush. why? guest: 2 when the suburban voters, as i pointed out a moment ago, they come out of philadelphia with a huge edge and that is the largest municipality in the state with a heavy concentration of democrats. if you win philadelphia in the out of thet's say southeast by 650,000 votes, it's pretty difficult to overcome that edge in other parts of the stage even if republicans win the infamous "t" we referred to. the other thing to remember about pennsylvania is that it is dominated by one television market. there are six tv markets in the state, but philadelphia covers 40% of the voters in the state. all of delaware and the southern half of new jersey. in order to be effective in the television advertising business, you have to really advertise in the philadelphia television market which goes all the way up to lehigh valley, way out into the western area moving closer to the susquehanna river. where i live just east of susquehanna, you can get philadelphia television, but it is other counties that go right up to lehi

said something to the effect that it wouldn't. guest: you go back to george w. bush and wasn't policies he put forward but the congress. the congress has put forward a number of policies. the house of representatives has passed no taxpayer funding of abortion measure. it's died in the senate. if we see a change in the senate, akin and murdock elected, it will pass the senate and go to mitt romney. in many ways the president is more of the cheerleader for the country and helps facilitate these measures that come up through the people's representatives in congress and that's the way it should be. not necessarily looking for mitt romney as president to go in and advance a set of policies. we have these policies coming up, and being blocked in the senate by senator reid, but now if we see a change in the senate, they will get to the white house and the president and i fully expect that mitt romney as president will support a number of measures, including a balanced budget or moving in that direction. we haven't had a budget in over 1,000 days come out of the senate. i think that wi
